After Jeremiah 29:7-13
There is a city on a hill
and there is a city at the bottom
of the hill, a city in the plain:
a city of peace, a city without
a city of wealth, a city without
a city of live and kindness
a city without
a city safe and secure
a city of violence
a city that’s home
a city that’s exile.
Seek the peace of the city of exile.
Seek the safety of the city of exile.
Seek this city of exile.
Seek its streets.
Walk its lanes
Visit its homes.
